DM1998 Engineering Training Course 13.0 credits

The course consists of seven weeks of internship at a workplace, weekly reflections, a completed summary reflection, oral presentation and participation in a final seminar. The internship will provide insight into different possibilities and conditions for the applicability of knowledge. The tasks must have such a high degree of complexity that the student has the opportunity to apply their theoretical knowledge. Account must be taken of the relevance of the tasks for the education. The course should provide an overview of the requirements and skills that are set in professional life and which are not of a strictly technical nature, but often directly linked to the professional engineer. During the internship period, the student must work under the conditions and conditions prevailing at the relevant workplace and have limited work tasks. During the internship period, the student must also develop ability to function as a contributing employee.

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

• The professional role of the engineer: participation in work that is relevant for engineers in the field

• The professional role of the engineer: reflection on how experiences come to use in the professional role and how needs of additional knowledge are identified and acquired,

• Project organisation: the student reflects on different technical roles and how they cooperate,

• Company organisation: the student reflects on cooperation with professional roles in subjects other than their own

• Engineering skills: oral and written communication and cooperation with other professional actors.

Intended learning outcomes

After passing the course, the student should be able to:

• identify different possibilities and preconditions for the applicability of knowledge

• relate to the demands on, and skills that are expected from, professional engineers in working life that are not of strictly technical character

• identify, acquire and choose relevant information regarding technical and engineering issues

• explain the multi-faceted role that today's professional engineers encounter

• summarise experiences/learnings from the course, both orally and in writing, connected to knowledge from previously read courses in the programme

• reflect on the professional role of the engineer today and in the future

• interact with professional engineers and other professional actors in the area of engineering to carry out given tasks

in order to

• be able to relate to the professional preconditions and possibilities of an engineer in the area of working life that the chosen organisation/workplace represents.
